On Thursday, January 3, the Atlanta Humane Society’s Animal Protection Unit responded to a neglect case involving approximately 165 German Shepherd Dogs on a property in Metter, GA. After carefully assessing the scene alongside the Candler County Sheriff’s Department, over 150 dogs ranging in age and health status were found living in extremely neglectful conditions.
The owner of the property was arrested is facing animal cruelty charges. The Atlanta Humane Society team is back on site today and will be moving the most medically in-need animals back to our Alpharetta and West Midtown locations later today.
The dogs on this property were living in extremely unsanitary conditions and are were desperate need of help. Our team is working closely with Candler County Sheriff’s Department to provide the support and care needed to ensure the best outcome for these dogs.
All of the animals will be assessed and given a basic medical exam on-site, and we are working tirelessly to find safe and appropriate placement for all of the dogs.
We can notify you the next time a we have a German Shepherd that is available for adoption. Visit our Pet Alert page.
